5:40 am
touched an all-time low of 1.344%. now, think about that. if you hold the money for 10 years you get 1.3% interest. if you lend it for 30 years you get about 2.1%. this is terrible news for savers, especially risk-averse ones but it's not great for pension funds. they are trying to provide stable income for retirees. >> so jill, it's got to be good news for borrowers, then, right? >> reporter: yeah. absolutely. the average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed rate mortgages are near all time lows for those with good credit. yesterday there were some lenders as low as 3.75% for 30 years. 15-year loan rates at 2.75%. now, adding to the good news, the exact same time home prices have mostly increased across the nation and credit scores
